The Salmon Leap pub which may soon have a new owner

A pub owned by the former owners of the Mucky Duck in Celbridge is going up for sale.

Carberry’s in Dunshaughlin, which was owned by Celbridge Taverns, is being put up for sale by NAMA.

The company, which is associated with boxing promoters, Brian and Colm Peters, ran the two pubs along with O’Flaherty’s in Navan.

In July 2013 receivers were called in by NAMA.

While the Mucky Duck closed for a very brief period at the start of last July, it reopened quickly under the control of NAMA.

John Ryan of selling agents CBRE said that, so far, Carberry’s is the only one going up for sale.

They are seeking offers in the region of €250,000.

He said the sale of the Salmon Leap pub, announced in November, in Leixlip, had not been concluded yet.

“There is no white smoke,” he said.

It is believed a Dublin based company is buying the premises but with receivership sales, in particular, the legal process is slow.

Mr. Ryan said there was an increased interest in pubs now, which were at a more economic price, enabling people to both trade and pay the purchase costs.

He said the sale of the Salmon Leap was unusual.

“We got a lot of calls from people who did not want to buy it but they wanted a pub there. That is unusual,” he said.

The pub, once run by Arthur Guinness’s brother, Richard, was destroyed by fire in recent times. It was formerly owned by John Nolan.
